is this game world-focused or instanced-focused? solo content or group content?
is it more about exploring the world, questing, discovering lore and hidden secrets like skyrim or just... getting a group and grindind in raids like world of warcraft?
i like wow and all, but have a big problem with group content in general(mostly because of my playing-time), and in WoW i always felt like i could only enjoy about 20% of the game, since it is all about raids. world content is extemely trivialized and treated like a ladder you have to climb before being able to do the real thing... what i want is a game about exploring the world and finding out lore, without feeling left behind on progression or missing the main content of the game.
i like these group content parts of MMOs, but not as the nature of the game... its more like something to do once in a while and have some fun.
is LotrO the game for me? or once i reach high levels, will world content become something trivial to do when my raid group is offline?
